Abstract [en]

Company X develops innovative machines mostly for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, where they assemble and test the machines in their production department. When a machine is sold a certain amount of hours for mechanical and electrical assembly is offeredand Company X has seen a trend of these hours are being exceeded. Company X is then forced to bear the cost of the exceeded hours which decreases the financial profit.

The purpose of this study is to locate activities within the production department regarding mechanical and electrical assembly processes that add no value to the final product, define the root causes of why these problems exist and find a way to improve them. The following questions this study is to answer are: 

• How are the processes currently executed?

• Which factors work less well in the processes?

• What can be done to increase the performance of the processes and make them more effective?

Data from these processes have been collected through interviews, observations and reading deviations reports. The processes are analysed to locate the greatest issues regarding the assembly process, the root causes are then found and examined. The issues selected for improvements are those that affect the employees in the production department way of working.

A brainstorming session was executed and suggestions for improvement were presented for the employees working in the process, where they could come with inputs to form the best possible solution. The final solutions are presented more in detail and were chosen because of their impact to solve the problem and prioritised due to their simplicity to implement.

The conclusions that were made is that if the suggested solutions are implemented it will take time for the employees to adjust to the change and it is of great importance the employees are open and devoted to making the change happen. It is also important to constantly improve the solutions and find new solutions on how to improve the employee's way of working. To accomplish this it is suggested the employees have continuous improvement meetings.
